~Mini Deep-Dish Pizzas~

I saw this idea on a blog post somewhere last week. The recipe wasn't included with the post, and I didn't bookmark the post either. But I really wanted to make them, so this is what I came up with!

You'll need:
muffin tin
pizza dough (one pizza's worth)
pizza sauce
your choice of toppings

I made my pizza dough, then rolled it out in a rectangle and cut it in 12 equal pieces.

Grease muffin tin, and put each square of dough in the muffin tin, working it in so it makes a well and covers the sides:

Put a spoonful of pizza sauce in each pizza, then use a pastry brush to spread it around:

Put your favorite toppings in the pizza. I chose olives and turkey sausage.

Top with cheese:

Bake at 450* for 10 minutes.

These would be fun in a lunch box, as appetizers, at a potluck, or really anytime! Pizza is always good!

I haven't done them yet, but I still plan on it. :) We'll put mushrooms, olives, and turkey pepperoni in ours I think. My hubby thinks I should make them in mini muffin tins for bite-sized ones!

I made these today, Tammy! They turned out perfectly! So much fun. Can't wait to serve them to the dozen teens we're having over on Friday for a game night. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

Tammy said...

Melissa, so glad they turned out for you! Yay! Thanks for letting me know!

Any tips for freezing and reheating? Thanks.

Tammy said...

Lucia, I've never frozen them, so I'm not sure. I would start by letting them cool completely, then wrapping them individually in saran wrap, storing in a freezer ziploc. For reheating, reheat like you would pizza.
